What is vascular laser?
The vascular laser is a type of laser that allows the treatment of skin anomalies due to an alteration of the blood vessels.
Vascular laser treatment is intended for people with skin disorders due to the appearance of abnormal blood vessels. Most of the time, these are the following disorders:
- Redness and couperose of the face.
- Redness, rubyangioma of the trunk and small vessels of the body
- Red or bluish capillaries of the legs and varicosities.
Each session lasts an average of 20 to 30 minutes. The number of sessions is defined during the first appointment. Each laser indication is governed by a codified treatment procedure that will have been explained during the initial consultation. Most of these disorders can be treated without anesthesia.
To destroy a blood vessel with a laser, either the vascular walls are burst or the hemoglobin in the red blood cells circulating inside the vessel is coagulated.
Thus, the laser shots are performed by the physician who moves the laser handpiece on the surface of the skin. He uses aiming systems that allow him to precisely deliver the desired doses of light and energy to the target areas.
One method causes purpura, a small purple spot on the treated vessel that disappears after 10 days. The other results in redness and swelling for a few hours to a few days. The method will be chosen by the doctor according to your case.
You can resume your activities as soon as the laser treatment is completed.
It is important not to expose yourself to the sun or to heat sources that would redilate the vessels.
The problem is resolved on the treated veins after the number of sessions indicated by the doctor. However, we will not be able to prevent the appearance of new vessels if you have a vascular problem that favors the distortion of the vessels. At your appointment, the doctor will explain the results you can expect depending on your case.
